Summer Treats


WOODEN SHOE


HEAD DRESS

Are you working on a Dutch Treat quilt?
There is a Dutch Treat facebook group found HERE.
Judy Garden (author and designer of the original quilt) is a member.
How awesome it would be to share your journey with her and others working on this quilt. Admirers are also welcome to join.

I was extremely saddened to learn of the passing of Mary Kucera Roberts LeClerc! known in blogland as "Quilting in Oz". Several years ago, Mary inspired and encouraged me to begin working on my Dutch Treat quilt. Mary created the Dutch Treat facebook group so others could share their work.
She was a prolific quilter with a kind and generous spirit. She will be greatly missed by many quilters, myself included.

SHENANDOAH VALLEY BOTANICAL ALBUM QUILT
I'm late to post my Lily block for the month of July but here she is:

And the block for August has just been announced on the sew along blog HERE.
The block is Yellow Tulip and this is my Red & Taupe version.

I've been putting all of the blocks into a grid to keep track of my progress.
Below are all the blocks that have been assigned to date:
(the colors look a bit more vibrant in person)

July was a blur... my sweet little grandson had surgery and was not able to continue with summer camp. So he's been spending the past few weeks with me at Camp Nana's house. He was such a brave boy before & after his operation to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. Thankfully, Nana knows the best place to go to cool a sore healing throat.

..

I wish you a Happy start to August!

  11. The wooden shoe block looks oh so Dutch in style. I always have wondered how the Dutch people could wear wooden shoes. They just don't seem like they would be comfortable.
    The ice-cream cone looks delicious. Camp Nana surely kept you busy but so good for your grandson.

  12. Of course NANA knows best how to soothe the little one. Poor kid, what a way to ruin a summer but I am sure that time with you made it all easier for him!
    Love the floral blocks and that sweet wooden shoe! :)
